During Project Implementation About 20 seminars and workshops for an estimated 640 participants will be conducted for the staff of EAs and implementing Agencies (lAs), accounting and finance officers of borrower/grant recipient governments and audit staff of Auditor-General Offices.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services An individual national consultant will be engaged under the TA for about 3-4 months on the intermittent basis to enhance and modify the training tools to be used in the seminars, including the eC-LAS. The consultant will be selected and recruited by ADB, in accordance with the Guidelines on Use of Consultants (April 2010, as amended from time to time). The consultant will need to have: (i) extensive and up-to-date knowledge in programming and modeling by using relevant software like MS Excel or web programming standards/tools such as PHP, MySQL, Java Script, HTML, CSS, etc.; (ii) capability to design, develop and implement a loan accounting model system to meet business requirements of ADB loan accounting and financial reporting; and (iii) in-depth knowledge in finance and accounting.
Procurement

ADB will be the Executing Agency. The Controller's' Department (CTL) will implement the S-R-CDTA. The TA will commence in January 2012 and is expected to be completed in September 2013. Resource speakers will be mostly from CTL and RMs; and ADB will provide all seminar materials and facilities. Resource speakers for the topic on government budgeting, auditing and accounting systems will be invited from the host government. ADB will obtain a written no- objection of the government of a DMC prior to the financing of a seminar or workshop in the territory of the concerned DMC under this S-R-CDTA.

The primary target participants will consist mainly of accounting and finance officers of the borrower/grant recipient governments, government auditors, project accountant, and finance officers from the EAs under ADB loans. The priority is for technical level staff who are involved in preparation and submission of withdrawal application to ADB as well as those who are involved in project accounting, debt servicing and auditing activities.

Each seminar will be held for a duration not exceeding one week including, additional time which may be required for translation services. About 30-35 participants are to be arranged for each seminar to ensure adequate interaction between participants and resource-speakers. For selected .countries, multiple seminars will be held successively in different locations within the same country in one mission for administration cost savings. In addition, informal workshops, of shorter duration will also be organized for a smaller group of participants, if necessary.
